  • Patent number: 9892543
    Abstract: Systems and methods for estimating the pose of a textureless object are disclosed. A method to estimate a pose of a textureless object includes obtaining, by a processing device, a single image of the textureless object. The pose of the textureless object can be inferred from the single image. The method further includes generating, by the processing device, a three dimensional model of the textureless object from a plurality of viewpoints and a plurality of scales obtained from image data of the textureless object, matching, by the processing device, the single image with a discretized render of the three dimensional model via a multi-level illumination invariant tree structure to obtain an alignment of the single image with the discretized render, and estimating, by the processing device, the pose of the textureless object based on the alignment.

  • Patent number: 7734633
    Abstract: Procedures for learning and ranking items in a listwise manner are discussed. A listwise methodology may consider a ranked list, of individual items, as a specific permutation of the items being ranked. In implementations, a listwise loss function may be used in ranking items. A listwise loss function may be a metric which reflects the departure or disorder from an exemplary ranking for one or more sample listwise rankings used in learning. In this manner, the loss function may approximate the exemplary ranking for the plurality of items being ranked.
